‘This is a funeral’ Le Pen predicts the end of the EU as she promises FREXIT referendum
MARINE LE PEN has dealt a crippling blow to the European Union by promising she will hold a referendum to decide whether France remains in the Union if she becomes president.
The president of the National Front, a right-wing Eurosceptic party, issued the warning to Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission after branding his state of the Union speech to MEPs at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, “insipid”.

The former Luxembourg Prime Minister added: “The scope in which we cooperate together is far too small.
